HOTELS UNDER RODENT ATTACK

Hotels are the areas where the rodent species are mostly attracted.People visit hotels to relax and rejuvenate.Hotel rooms have everything you need for a pleasant stay. However these tiny notorious species commonly found in hotels and restaurants are enough to ruin your vacation leaving you with nothing but exasperation. The species explore each and every room; mostly kitchens; and are responsible for damages.

Nearly 40% of the mammals species are Rodents. Rodents are characterized by two pairs of  continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws which need to be kept short by gnawing. Rats and mice are attracted by food supplies and do not venture far from their shelter or nesting sites. Rats and mice are capable of a rapid increase in population given an abundant food supply, due to the number of litters they are capable of producing and the time to maturity. They also are in constant search of places that would provide shelter from predators. They need dark and warm places to hide. This is the reason why they invade our hotels and restaurants.

Rodent presence in hotels can be indicated through the signs they leave. Droppings of various shapes and sizes; smudge marks along runs caused by their oily fur; small entry spots; gnawing on clothes, building materials,etc. are the signs which indicate rodent presence in hotels.

Rodents are the carriers for many diseases, including Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis, Toxoplasmosis, Lyme disease, rat-bite fever. Rodents carry ectoparasites, including ticks, fleas, lice and mites and are therefore also vectors for the diseases that these carry. They contaminate food with the droppings, urine and flith.

Rodents usually enter the hotels through poorly sealed heating and cooling air conditioning ducts, laundary area, drainage pipe holes, etc. The spacious area like hotels is available for them to accommodate and  requires great efforts to completely eradicate them.

Hotels have to suffer great economic losses due to rodent menace. Rodent sighting in hotels can badly affect the hotel’s name and reputation. Therefore hotels must pay special attention in maintaining hygiene and also eradicating the rodent infestation.

Consider the following news articles:

Hotels do need effective and durable repellents. Hence a permanent solution is available with   C-tech Corporation in the form of product called RodrepelTM. RodrepelTM is extremely low at toxicity, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic compound, non-hazardous, non-dangerous and environmentally safe rodent repellent.

Our product is available in the form of a masterbatch, which can be directly incorporated in the application while manufacturing and in form of lacquer that can be directly applied as a top coat on the surface of application. RodrepelTM does not kill but only keeps the rodents away by making use of the sensory mechanisms.

The product functions from a distance due to the peculiar smell which generates a typical fear response in rodents. Rodents are further restricted from biting the applications treated with our products due to advanced mechanisms like dermal irritation, extremely bitter taste, sensory stimuli modification etc.

Further, they acquire a fear towards the RodrepelTM containing products which make them stay away from the application. Thus, RodrepelTM actually helps in modifying rodent behavior. Rodents being social animals also communicate the bad experience to their population in the vicinity. Thus using Rodrepel™ can give a long term relief to hotel businesses from rodents.

RodrepelTM is a product resulting from smart technology and green chemistry. Hence doesn’t harm any target or non target species in any way, just keeps rodents away. We are committed to our environment & we believe that no harm must be caused to animals or to the environment.
